GISRUK2014 presentation: Using Social Media Data to Assess Spatial Crime Hotspots

I have recently presented some work at the GISRUK 2014 conference in Glasgow. The work is a collaboration with Martin Andresen (SFU, Canada) and looks at the differences in crime hotspot locations using two population-at-risk measures: the residential population (traditional) and the ‘ambient’ population (estimated using social media).

The slides are available here and the extended abstract is here.

The full paper is now available online: If you don’t have access to the journal, use this link to download a copy (limited to 50 downloads).
